COMKOKTAKLK IN' CIU'IU II .JOHANNESBURG, S o u t h Africa (/Pi—An Anglican clergyman at Nelspruit, east of Johannesburg, have bracely confessed that in this country's frei|iienl hot weather he wears shorts, instead of the more customary black pants, under his cassock. Now the Rev. R. E. Taylor is encouraging members of his congregation to wear cool clothes on warm Sundays because he believes comfortably clad churchgoers can give more sincere attention to their devotions. The Dean of Johannesburg, the Rt. Rev. P. II. F. Barron, who supports Taylor, said: "Some of my congregation come to church in sports clothes. I'd rather ilicy came dressed like thai than not. come to church at all." The Johannesburg R a n d Daily Mail commented editorially that some churchgoers may have suspected that Taylor's practice is much more wide- i spread than is generally ac- 1 knowledged in ecclesiastical I circles, but said it is rare for a cleric to admit it.

AIXKX Southern Illinois University Most <>l these columns have told of the beliefs, practices, incidents and individuals of the past. A few weeks ago one column in answer to a <|iies- lion. dared to predict, some of the changes that would he evident, in southern Illinois in the year 2000. I At about lite same lime several other individuals likewise donned their mantles and uttered prophecies. They, like this one. made little comment beyond that which applied to such things as could be seen as one drove along the highways. There certainly will be oilier changes in addition to those physically visible. These other changes will be fully as significant as most of those commented upon, perhaps more so. This is an attempt to look at changes not so readily visible. Quite a bit of enjoyment j comes from making prophecies.! With reasonable caution it. is] a safe pastime, particularly so if the would-be prophet is on the up side of seventy and sets a time for their fulfillment a lifetime ahead. By taking fiat precaution he also will not. he present and embarrassed or; have to explain that new fac- 1 tors upset Ids calculations. ' Since recorded history began.! most remembered prophecies have been associated with man's j religious beliefs and practices, j Perhaps it would be ,iusl as | well to begin this round of prophecies I here. , In an effort to live together; better, men now seem to be earnestly, deliberately and purposefully seeking to find, agree upon and accept certain basic beliefs, those upon which agreement can be reached. The ecumenical conference now being held in Rome by the Catholic Church, along with many interfaith councils and conferences of assorted groups, Christian, Jewish and otherwise, indicate a seeking for basic beliefs acceptable to all. This goal will never be fully attained but. progress will be notable and man will be the better for it in the year 2000. Also, it will make him more considerate of the earnest beliefs of others. * * * This writer, naive perhaps, believes that daily family worship will have increased and man will seek more diligently the help of his Maker. Religion will have become a greater unifying factor in family life, a kind of family bond. Music will have become a greater force in the life of people. Folk and popular music will retain their respective appeals. Folk music will have attained a more important place than if now holds, and will reflect the sentiments that arc tradition. Popular music will continue to reflect its time hut: will be bettor music. Truly great music, classical if you choose to call it so, will come to be better understood, and more appreciated and enjoyed. TV and a few Bernsteins will bring that, to pass. More persons will play instruments and be proud of their attainment. The population will include a larger proportion of older people. Life expectancy will have increased more than in any like period of history. Older persons will remain more active at some chosen task that may range from growing flowers, through painting pictures to "making things." * • * Schools will be better still in t:he year 2000. Eduentors will be spending less effort trying to find justification for tho sad fact that Johnnie can't read, and will be giving more effort to teaching him to do so. Effort to discover and develop latent possibilities and capacities of the physically handicapped and mentally retarded will have produced results only now being glimpsed. Some of us, looking backward a lifetime upon those considered 'simple' and others definitely crippled, are amazed at their attainments. This, despite tho fact that we didn't, have facilities nor know much about how lo help. Excepting a very small proportion, the handicapped and retarded will be contributors lo and not burdens upon society. By the year 2000 some recog­ nized institutions of learning will lie willing to confer a bachelor's degree upon a student with such a major as bricklaying, saw liling or concrete finishing. They may even include clothing alterations I tailoring) and shoe repairing. All of these a>'o necessary, valuable and very desirable skills that, can't, be learned in "nine easy lessons." Racial relationships will be greatly improved. Most of us, by then, will be fully willing to concede that the ability to un- 1 dersland our language and to] have skin pigmentation like! ours really are nol measures ol ! the man.

H.Y (iKOKfiK KSI'KIt PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The National Council of Churches pushed ahead today on several fronts for immediate civil rights action. Participants, observers and visitors at the triennial general [assembly set out for Washington j by bus lo urge I heir congress- j men lo sign a discharge petition i to free civil rights bills from the jllouse Rules Committee. The Sit) voting delegates remained behind to take up a resolution calling for complete desegregation ol churches and a message lo the churches which embraces civil rights among other things. The trip lo Washington was to j .support a resolution, adopted Thursday by an overwhelming | voice vote, calling on Congress i to pass the civil rights legislation quickly and to use the discharge petition, a rare parlia- . menlary maneuver, if neces- • sary. I A council official said partici- ; pants were going ahead with the | trip despite assurances by Rep. jl toward W. Smith, D-Va., chair- jman of the Rules Committee, of [ action on the bills next month, j House Democratic leaders 'have said they will introduce ! Ihe discharge petition Monday. Signatures of 21S congressmen would he needed to by-pass the committee. The council's second civil rights resolution called on the churches specifically to declare open membership, lo engage in interracial activities wtih other churches, and to inquire about Ihe policies o f companies and enterprises with which churches do business. The council is the cooperative federation of 'M Protestant and Eastern Orthodox denominations with a total of 10 million members in the United States. The assembly ends Saturday. 1.
